MORANO: Why is it the wrong argument? Because every proposal ever done including the United Nations Kyoto protocol would not impact the temperatures assuming you buy into their science.
NYE [shaking his head, at the 7:15 mark]: We’re not talking about the temperature.
And boom, there it is, the notion that “climate change” is about something other than actual warming.
Newsbusters has the transcript.
And here’s NoTricksZone
It started as soon as Nye opened his mouth at the 1:39 mark, he claimed the Medieval Warm Period and Roman Period were isolated incidents occurring only in Europe. He repeated it again at 2:55.
That claim was already refuted 10 years ago. Since then there have been dozens of studies from every corner of the globe where proxy data clearly show that the aforementioned optimums occurred in cycles WORLDWIDE. Incredibly, Bill Nye thinks that the global temperature was more or less constant before human CO2 emissions. Even Michael Mann no longer believes that.
And another good zinger from Morano
Morano: ‘CO2 is rising. No one’s disputing that. What Bill Nye just did was waste everyone’s time explaining that CO2 is rising. The question is what impact does CO2 have on the weather, what impact does CO2 have on climate change,’ exclaimed the publisher of climatedepot.com’
Soros funded Media Matters is upset that CNN dared to provide Morano with a debate platform….probably because Climate Realists always destroy Warmists when they actually debate.
